Phoenix Ale Brewery

3002 E. Washington St.
Phoenix, AZ 85034


About Us:

The late Greg "Fretzy" Fretz and I started to talk about opening a brewery in Phoenix as far back as 2009.  After selling Pyramid Breweries in Seattle, I was both anxious to start afresh in an industry I love dearly, and, after 25 years in the Pacific Northwest, I needed some sun in my life.  Fretzy persuaded me to come and take a look at Phoenix as a possible location for a new brewery.  I thought about it for several nanoseconds - a microbrewery in The Valley of the Sun! After many frustrating months of searching for the right building and location, and several false starts, we settled on a plain old boxy warehouse on an acre of land at  3002  E Washington St, just north of Skyharbor International Airport.
